Amazon's Perfect Order Experience team works to ensure that buyers receive authentic products in the condition and with the functionality they are expecting. We design and implement policies, tools, and technology innovations to protect the buying experience on Amazon. Our greatest challenge is protecting Buyer trust without unjustly harming good selling partners. To strike the right balance, we invest in mechanisms which allow us to accurately identify and mitigate risk, and to quickly correct and learn from our mistakes. This strategy includes continuously evolving enforcement policies, iterating our Machine Learning risk models, and exercising highjudgement decisionmaking where we cannot apply automation.

Our team is looking for a Business Analyst to accurately identify gaps and mitigate risks observed in our current mechanisms from a data perspective, to identify new risk factors, to automate root causation, and offer tools that allow self-service deep-dives.

You will excel in navigating between data and their business signification.
In this role, you will apply your analytical skills to bust myths, create insights, and produce recommendations to help the Risk Managers on the team products to mitigate fraudulent activity in our marketplaces.

You will be working with historic information and using real-time data to provide solutions to build defect root causation for North American Network. You will also be expected to continuously learn new systems, tools to analyze data and enhance our analytics. All of this work is performed in close coordination with risk managers and business.

• Assist in the design and development of highly available dashboards and metrics using appropriate software and programming solutions

• Prioritize in an ambiguous environment
• Adept at being a change agent by bringing solutions/ideas to tackle any problem
